When a woman named Earline Davis answered the phone on Monday afternoon, she had no idea she’d become a player in Sean Hannity‘s attempt to call the Obamcare hotline and grill an employee with questions about the website’s rollout. She also had no idea that phone call would lead to her firing.
As a result, the conservative radio host has gifted the mother of two a year’s tax-free salary of $26,000 and has promised to help her find a new job. Hannity brought Davis on his show this afternoon to detail her firing and make the generous offer.
Davis explained that the morning after the fateful phone call, she was escorted to an HR meeting and told she would be released. The reason? “Contact with the media is not allowed,” Davis said.
According to the former operator, she was never told during her initial training that she is forbidden from taking calls from the media. “I was just out here trying to help everybody,” she told Hannity.
“I’m very sorry that you had to go through that,” the radio host told her. “I don’t want you to have to pay a price just for taking our call. So I want to help you out here.”RELATED: Sebelius NOT Fired? But This Single Mom ObamaCare Operator Is?
